Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThe first 31 picks of the 2019 NFL draft came and went and saw the New England Patriots, holding the 32nd selection, do nothing. When they finally were on the clock, the expectation was a trade-down but it never happened: instead of moving out, the Patriots decided to invest in Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry — the highest wideout picked by the team since Terry Glenn was picked seventh overall in 1996.With Harry, the Patriots have found an X-receiver able to outmuscle defensive backs and win jump balls — a similar element to what now-retired tight end Rob Gronkowski brought to the table. And while the tight end position still needs to be addressed, adding the 21-year-old adds young, cheap talent to Tom Brady’s receiving arsenal. All in all, New England’s wide receiver group now looks as follows one day into the draft:Roster locksJulian Edelman returns as the undisputed number one wideout on New England’s roster, while Matthew Slater is safe due to his role as a core special teamer and captain. Harry now joins the duo in the roster lock category given his status as a first-round draft pick — and a player likely to see plenty of chances during his first summer in the NFL to potentially earn a starting-level role once the regular season starts.Veteran depthWhile Phillip Dorsett was re-signed to a one-year contract in free agency http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-troy-niklas-jersey , Demaryius Thomas, Bruce Ellington and Maurice Harris were all brought in through the open market. Dorsett has the best chances of making the club out of the four given his experience in the Patriots’ system. The rest of the veteran depth options, meanwhile, will likely fight for one spot on the roster — at least as it is constructed at the moment.Young depthWhile Braxton Berrios spent all of his 2018 rookie season on injured reserve, Damoun Patterson was a practice squad player last year — earning numerous practice player of the week recognitions along the way. Neither of the two youngsters should be expected to have too big of an impact this year, however, with Berrios probably the most realistic option to contribute due to his versatility in the kicking game.Question markWhen available, Josh Gordon is serious threat as a boundary receiver. The problem is that he is still indefinitely suspended and, given his history in the NFL, cannot be counted on to be available for a full season. Obviously Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey , however, Gordon’s health is important above all else at this point — but if he were able to come back, he would further boost New England’s wide receiver group as a top option alongside Edelman and Harry. Plenty of players don’t like the idea of an 18-game regular season. The greatest quarterback in league history (and possibly the greatest player at any position in football history) seems to have no qualms about the prospect of playing more football.Tom Curran of NBCSportsBoston.com posed to Brady last week the question of whether players could handle 18 games that count per year. Brady was pragmatic about the challenge of getting through the current 16-game slate plus two more.“It depends how you take care of yourself,” Brady said. “That’s how I see it. I think your ability to play, your ability to practice is as good as your ability to recover. So if you can’t recover, I think a six-game schedule is hard. I try to focus on the recovery of things and try to be out here every day in practice. I know it takes a level of focus and commitment to do that. There’s a lot of work in advance that needs to be done to make that happen. So . . . I love football.”Within the context of the question, the answer, and the broader subject, “so . . . I love football” seems to be a clear indication that, for Brady Womens Phillip Dorsett Jersey , 16 games is great and more games would be even greater.Brady’s remarks come at a time when the NFL Players Association has taken a firm stand against expanding the regular season, and his views currently seem to be in the minority. Some believe that the NFL eventually will make the players an offer sufficiently strong to get them to agree to play two more games.The Patriots already play more than 16 games on a consistent basis. Over the past six years, their postseason appearances have added another full season of games. For his career, Brady has played 40 postseason games. That’s two-and-a-half extra seasons of football.As he prepares to turn 42, Brady could be retired before the regular season ever expands from 16 games. Then again, it’s not clear that he’ll ever retire.
